I’m a freelance food writer, home economist and food stylist which basically means I cook…a lot! I’m a self confessed feeder; not content with just feeding friends and family I set up a mobile wood-fired pizza company, That’s Amore! Pizza Co. You can find me at events and festivals throughout East Kent.
I love to cook for work and for pleasure and after being asked on Instagram for recipes of my foodie snaps I decided to create this blog. I also suffer with anxiety and depression and find that working through a recipe and creating something beautiful can be a real tonic when the anxiety takes hold, I like to call these my mindful bakes.
Don’t be fooled by the name of this blog isn’t just about baking, I hope to fill it with breakfasts, lunches and dinners that can help keep your body and mind your healthy too, what I like to call my ‘Good Mood Food’. A balanced diet full of fruit, vegetables and good fats is essential for everyone, especially those who struggle with mental health issues.
Finally I want to add some anecdotes and stories about the challenges of suffering with anxiety with the hope of breaking down the barriers and creating a conversation. Yes that’s right, this blog ain’t all about me! I want you to create and share my recipes too, us the hashtag #BakingYouBetter on Instagram and twitter. Maybe this way mental health can stop being such a taboo subject. So if you’re with me lets start baking you better.
